Owner's Manual
Read Rules for Safe Operation and Instructions Carefully
Working in vicinity of a lead-acid battery is dangerous. Batteries generate explosive gases during normal
battery operation. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that each time before using your charger, you
read this manual and follow the instructions exactly.
WARNING: Handling the cord on this product or cords associated with accessories sold with this product, will expose you to lead, a
chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
A.

Use battery charger on LEAD ACID type rechargeable
batteries only, such as used in autos, trucks, tractors,
airplanes, vans, RV's, trolling motors, etc. Charger is not
intended to supply power to low-voltage electrical system

WARNING: Do not use battery charger for charging dry-
cell batteries that are commonly used with home appliances.
These batteries may burst and cause injury to persons and
damage to property.
3.
Use only attachments recommended or sold by
manufacturer. Use of non-recommended attachments may
result in fire, electric shock, or injury.

When disconnecting the battery charger, pull by the plug
not by the cord. Pulling on the cord may cause damage to
